We’ve got our website up and running! The HOPEFULLY easy-to-remember domain is joshandrob.com. We also set up a bunch of social channels like a public group on Telegram, and a Twitter handle: @sorrytopic.
Check out another “hangout” podcast: Getting Caught Up with a couple of more interesting people, Mike and Jeff.
Josh: mysterious beer sitting in the fridge for months
Rob: 21st Amendment IPA
Rob has been getting really into coffee lately. He refers to The Coffee Podcast and about finding some online guides for making snobby coffee at home. Intelligentsia has a lot.
Josh on the other hand appreciates fancy coffee but is very lazy about it at home. He’s been using a Keureg some days, and other times he gets hours-old leftovers from his Airpot. One of those pump action things you’ll see at conferences and big meetings.
To spice things up, Rob suggests a simple challenge to try something new for a week or two. We’ll report back with the results!
Challenge for Josh: wake up and make fresh coffee one morning this week. Here’s the French press guide. He also needs to write a bio for the website.
